Well, it has been a very busy summer at Yellowstone National Park and at the Yellowstone Basin Inn.
We have had guests from all over the world, as far away as Dubai, Singapore, China and Russia. It has been a great experience meeting new people from different cultures and learning new things about these countries. Here at the Yellowstone Basin Inn we have been very lucky most mornings to see a bald eagle or two and pronghorn antelope through our spotting scope from the Electric Peak room where we serve breakfast. Guest have truly enjoyed having a wildlife experience during breakfast. We enjoy it too.
In Yellowstone National Park, on July 31, 2013 the Steamboat Geyser erupted after 8 year of being quiet. It is the tallest geyser in the world reaching heights of 300 feet. It has been three weeks and it is still steaming like crazy. It is very cool to see. Usually during the summer you can only see animals either earling morning or late in the evening but there have been many sightings (from our guests) of black bear and other animals even during the day. (They are the lucky ones).
Fall is a great time to visit Yellowstone for the fall colors, animal sightings, elk rut (mating) season and just to get away from the crowds of the summer season. It is still busy but not the frantic pace of the summer.
We hope to see you soon,
Greg & Sabina
